All re-factored here:

Yes, I realize these reports aren't that pleasing to the eye, but they 
generate easier than the pdf i previously posted.  If someone so desired 
I wouldn't turn down CSS help :)

As stab in the dark I made each task 1 week.  Should this be different?

I'm not sure what to change.  Shall we see what happens and remember to
build our experience into the Fedora 10 schedule?

Changed to 1 week

added--please advise on correct durations
